Technology and social media shape the identities and worldviews of today’s teens. Adolescent sexuality and relationships are interwoven with cell phones and social media. Many caregivers and professionals are left wondering: what does it all mean?
This workshop will start from the ground up, beginning with definitions and a roadmap of technology commonly used by young people. From there, we will examine how technology influences teen sexuality and relationships – for better or for worse.
We will discuss teen relationship abuse and technology, as well as the way teen relationships and identity can be strengthened
by technology. Finally, the class will focus on how to work with and relate to teens through the lens of technology.

In recent years the social work community has become increasingly aware of the risks of burnout and the importance of self-care. As social work supervisors, part of our role is to support supervisees in learning how to care for themselves while they learn to care for others.
This interactive workshop will explore warning signs of burnout and suggest concrete strategies to help social work professionals cope with stress and vicarious trauma. While the class will be couched primarily in the context of formal social work clinical supervision, much of the content will apply broadly to effective personnel management of all staff in social services settings.
3 CEUS - This workshop meets the Missouri requirement that LCSW supervisors receive 3 hours of continuing education in supervision per licensure period.
